Portrait of Alison

I just love a murder mystery where the clues keep flying at me faster than I can digest them, and they are so rich with meaning that I know they all mean something . . . . but what? Originally released in England with the title "Portrait of Alison," and later released around the world as "Postmark for Danger," this noir murder thriller will keep you guessing right up to the final deadly scene. Our mystery begins with a fiery car crash near Milan, Italy, and inside the car was a newspaper man and his current girlfriend, young movie star Alison Ford, and their bodies are burned beyond recognition. Next we meet the newspaper man's two brothers . . . one is a commercial artist in London and the other is an airline pilot. Nothing too mysterious so far, but just you wait . . . the stuff is about to hit the fan. The artist fellow has been painting a beautiful girl for a beer advertisement, and when the artist returns home later that day he finds his favorite model dead . . . and wearing a gown owned by the dead girl in the car that crashed. How did the dead girl’s gown get to the artist’s loft? Well, an old gentleman, 'Mr. Smith,' calls our artist and tells him that his daughter was the young actress who died in the car crash with the artist's brother. Mr. Smith wants the artist to paint a picture of his dead daughter using a photograph of her and the dress that she liked to wear. Our artist paints the picture, and while he is out and his model is being killed, the girl in the picture . . . yes . . . the dead girl in the car crash . . . comes into the artist's loft and paints over her portrait so that her face is unrecognizable . . . is it she who kills the artist's model and puts her in the pink gown? All the evidence points to the artist, and his incredible tales of meeting a dead girl, and oh, by the way . . . that post card. Post card? Yes, that post card sent from Milan to London to someone . . . who? The postcard that people will die for . . . the post card with a drawing of a woman's hand holding a bottle of Italian Chianti. So many questions . . . so many mysterious clues . . . so many lying, deceitful suspects! How is the used car salesman involved in this caper? Sheesh, it looks like everyone in the cast except maybe for the post man is involved in something dark and deadly, but our artist is totally in the dark, trying to make sense of everything that is happening to and around him. This is going to be fun! Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter on it and enjoy the show.
